Pink Recycled Plastic Hat

March 14, 2014 1 comment

It’s been 5 years since I first crocheted a baseball type cap from recycled plastic bags. Recently someone asked me to clarify some of the pattern details so I thought it might be a good idea to re-work the pattern.

If you read my blog last month, you might remember me blogging about these pretty pink plastic bags that an on-line friend sent me. Well I used them to create pink plarn and crocheted this recycled baseball cap using about 20 plastic bags.

The pattern worked up a little different with this crochet project but generally the hat came out looking about the same. I did have to decrease a bit to get the hat tighter on my head and add another row to the brim portion of the hat. Here is the original crocheted recycled plastic baseball pattern with the changes noted in the post. […]

Recycled Plastic Baseball Cap

February 19, 2009 27 comments

Here is the long awaited recycled baseball cap. It’s crocheted from plastic grocery bags made into plarn. This ball cap fits snuggly on my head and actually looks better on my head than this picture shows. I added some ribbon but you can add many different embellishments to spice up your hat.
Anyway if you want a cool recycled hat, try out this project.
